I travel quite a bit with my job, and therefore, was not going to settle for just another hotel or renal house for a vacation home in Greece. I had to find a place that satisfied four very different personalities. We chose Kyani after many hours of research for your dream vacation to Greece. My descriptions could not describe the beauty of the villa; the pictures on the website speak for themselves. From pre-arrival planning of activities to local bakery recommendations, Takis and Jackie were always professional and kind in offering information, and patient in dealing with first-time visitors to Greece. The villa was beautiful and in a superb location in the midst of a small village. I felt like we had stepped back in time, or at least to a different planet. Each day we visited a different town and beach. Our favorite turned out to the be the black beach, and the impeccable food and service at the Magic Bus. Owned and operated by Greek brothers Nikos and Christos, Perissa beach is a quick drive from the villa and one that you will want to make more than once.
The only problem we encountered was the quality of the car that we had rented with the villa. However, after emailing and speaking with Takis on the phone, we had an acceptable car the next morning. Takis’s excellent attitude and service turned this experience around.
Having three separate bedrooms, each suites in and of themselves, any group can have privacy and also come together in the many outside rooms, and den area upstairs. The house and grounds were beautifully furnished, very clean, and the two well-equipped kitchens were useful as we kept the fridges stocked with bottled water, wine from the fantastic small winery next door, and fresh feta and baked goods from the two local bakeries. We enjoyed the bakery just up the hill for breakfast and the one about a mile away toward Akrotiri each afternoon.
There are several local restaurants and friendly neighbors and dogs. We loved not being in a hotel in crowded Fira or at the other end of the island in Oia. Megalochori, a perfect little village, Mansion Kyani and Takis gave us the vacation we needed. I hope to visit again one day, and will only stay at Heritage Villas.
